shapes their policy. we have to start with harry truman, we really do. if you go back to 1948, 1947, it was not clear that the united states would be an ally of israel or that the united states would support the creation of the state of israel. these were open questions. in fact on many of these questions, the state department was not in the right place. they were not as supportive of israel. in fact, secretary of state marshall at one point threatened to resign if he went ahead with the position. truman stood firm against a statement. he did have the u.s. vote to create the partition, he did have the u.s. recognize israel. these were important statements that he made. one of the things that i read in the article, i think you can talk about this in the conversation later, the jewish vote was important. by supporting it the way that he did, harry truman helped to secure the democratic vote for a long time to come. there are a lot of reasons why jewish people vote democratic, but amongst one of the many reasons is that early on, harry truman was supportive of the creation of the state
